“My name is Konrad Styner. I’m a doctor of medicine”
Set in LA and starring Richard Boone as Dr Konrad Styner, Medic was the first medical drama to be filmed in real hospitals – and the first to show the birth of a baby.
The theme tune, Blue Star, had lyrics added in 1955 and was recorded by Felicia Sanders with the Norman Leyden Orchestra and Eve Boswell With Glen Somers and his Orchestra.
“Guardian of birth, healer of the sick; comforter of the aged. To the profession of medicine; to the men and women who labour in its cause, this story is dedicated.”
Dr Konrad Styner
